Good morning 🌊
“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
― Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Not as early as the work week but it's still early.
The coffee is poured; I've music playing — Dr Dre, Still D.R.E.
And I'm feeling the buzz of writing another post, and waking up to another day.
Why the quote/ocean, Ju?
Well, 'cos it's the message we're all living, apparently.
Not just that, but I don't live far from the coast and I feel the need to go to the beach over the weekend. Where I don't know but somewhere to feel the water on my feet and the wind in my face. I think it's a bit rough still to go for a sea swim but we'll see.
What's on today?
Thanks again for all your support this week; I love the LJ community and vibe. If only all my engagement on social media was the same. Sadly, it's all, well, meh! I know that in time I won't be there and I'll be doing something less virtual and more personal.
I know I keep saying it but we're so lucky to be here. Sure, life is always a mixed bag of things but one day...you know the drill. It will be OVER, done with, and none of this will matter.
Last night I met up with a couple of old friends. I'd loosely describe them as coaches or facilitators but whatever the name, they're lovely people and we share a similar understanding of this non-dual persuasion that I keep prattling on about. Stu, who is around 66, had heart bypass surgery last August. You wouldn't think so looking at him. He looks amazing and probably fitter than I've ever seen him. He said though he wouldn't recommend it. That's a good thing then...!
I'm off to the gym today. Probably this afternoon. This morning it will be a quick clean of the house, a bit of washing, ironing and if I'm lucky a few more pages of Robert Wolfe's book, Awakening to Infinite Presence. It's was free under a Creative Commons Licence and, as a former journalist, his writing on non-duality is crisp, clean and very much on point.
I'd like to say I'll relax and kick back today but Saturday is always busy and feels a lot like an extension of the five-day week, without the workplace machinations. It's Sunday which (truly) is a day of rest.
I hope you have a wonderful day.
If you're interested, I offer a limited number of places for coaching clients where I ask you to consider your direct experience of life and what it means to awaken to true self.
